STUDY ON THE KNOWLEDGE -SHARING NETWORK OF INNOVATION TEAMS USING SOCIAL NETWORK ANALYSIS

Zhihong Tian, Zhenji Zhang, Dongpo Xiao

Abstract

Under the conceptual framework of social network theory, we study the knowledge-sharing network of innovation teams by using the social network analysis methods. This paper puts particular emphasis on how does the structure of knowledge-sharing network impact on the knowledge flows at the overall level. We expect to find the key man and small groups in knowledge-sharing activities. Comparing with the actual organizational structure, we could improve the efficiency of knowledge flows within the organization.
